I love this image. It shows so much. I see the tree and its branches as a form of protection, shelter from the elrments and from danger, and in a lenten sense, a shield from temptation.

But I think staying in their shelter can also be harmful to us, stop us growing. I feel that only by straying out, meeting (and beating temptation), achieving things outside our comfort zone, retreating to the shelter for rests when we need to, can we be the best person it is possible to be… It is the only way to properly see the light that is coming through the branches.
